Baked to perfection without added fats or having to fry! Cauliflower has an excellent source of anti-inflammatory properties and full of vitamin C. With the added high fiber and beta-carotene from the sweet potato, these patties are a delightful combination.
Maybe it's because it is just so damn easy to drink white wine like water but it does tend to get you in a bit of a pickle. The likely reason for white wine behaviour is the sheer volume drunk although there are higher levels of sulphites (a wine preservative) in white wines than red.
Seaweed is being described by some as a superfood, the new kale, but to date there is little evidence based research to support such a claim.This is because until recently seaweed, which is at the bottom of the food chain, has not been considered worthy of research funding.
When I realised how out of control my phobia of food was, I didn't know what to do. I knew I wasn't alone. But I also knew that the more I read about people like me, the more I was told that I could never have a normal relationship with food again.
The worst thing you can do is to act righteous and make others feel bad about their choices. Everyone is different and you don't want to be judged so it's not fair to make others feel like that. Treat others how you would want to be treated!
As Oscar Wilde wrote perfectly: 'only dull people are brilliant at breakfast'. Give us a big warming bowl of something to hug from within; satisfy us with something from the frying pan; heck, give us toast slathered in butter - all served with the strongest coffee one can find.
We're bombarded on social media with organic, seasonal, whole food porn, it does mislead people into a style of eating where they think calories don't matter and then are understandably disheartened when they don't lose weight. Whilst I'm not for a minute saying that the passionate movement away from processed food is not a good thing, there's just more to it than meets the eye.
I love an oven baked quiche as much as the next person but sometimes I have neither the time nor the inclination for making pastry. This recipe is a nifty way to get that quiche flavour; the carby hit usually provided by the pastry, instead offered by the egg soaked bread.
My version didn't come out exactly the same as theirs (any departures from tradition are mine) but the family still ate it enthusiastically two days running as I tinkered with proportions and cooking times. It's my favourite new way of cooking cauli, a much under-rated vegetable these days.
So what's the latest in the London foodie scene of single-item restaurants? BALLS. Yes, you heard me right. But not just any balls... we're talking super-cheffy gourmet balls made from fine ingredients, and served with delicious accompaniments. Welcome to buzzing Soho restaurant: Balls & Company.
As a dietitian, I know just how important it is for growing children and teenagers to eat a balanced, nutritious diet. And as a mum, I know first-hand how difficult it can be! So just how can we ensure our children eat a healthy diet, without mealtimes turning into a battlefield?
I'm a total quinoa addict, so it seemed only natural to sub it in and leave the arborio on the bench (well, on the supermarket shelf to be exact). Quinoa is everything arborio isn't - it's low GI, low in starch, low carb, high protein, high fibre, you get the picture.
My whole relationship with food has become consumed by the after-effects of my illness and dealing with them. As a result, I've forgotten that there's more to food than this. And I don't think I'm the only one.
So has the time come for the industry to be bold and drop the name? Ditch the word farming and use a different term that captures the imagination and interest of the twenty-first century consumer? The Food Production Industry.
Biferno is a tiny appellation in the centre-south of Italy, next door to Abruzzo. And the wine is a wonderful, fruity red made from Montepulciano, the mainstay of Abruzzo, Aglianico, more commonly associated with Campania and Basilicata to the south and, finally, a little of the white grape Trebbiano.
Asparagus tips should be tightly furled and perky, with shoots that are straight and firm. This quiche is great for a picnic with a side of fresh green salad, or take a slice for breakfast on the run, or wrap in cos or romaine lettuce with a dab of honey mustard, its filling without having to add any carbs.
